3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(on bottle) Thank lord for Svaneke making a new Elderflower beer for the danes. The cloying stuff from Ørbæk has been(nearly) the only one widely distributed in the DK and I have been wondering why anybody else diden´t go for a try. Elderflower is the essense of midsummer i Danmark. And this is a nice st.hans drink for sure. Both taste and aroma has elderflower being dominant, there´s a very well balanced hopping, just enough to make the drink non-cloying. Finishes some-what dry and refresing. I need a keg, today, now, summers upon me.

Flaske: Dejlig frisk gul uigennemsigtig øl med et fint skumhoved. Virkelig god duft af hyldeblomst. Smagen er kraftig hyldeblomst med et humlebid til sidst til at bakke sødmen op med. Fin mundfylde især procenterne taget i betragtning. Alt i alt en yderst vellykket øl. Svaneke er faktisk et rigtig innovativt og godt bryggeri.

Bottle. Clear straw yellow with a medium longlasting white head. Lots of elderflower in aroma but also caramel and hops. Flavour is very refreshing with a good bitterness to deal with the somewhat sweet elderflowers. A real summer beer.
